Emery urges in-form Arsenal not to be distracted

Emery urges in-form Arsenal not to be distracted”

The Gunners lack of a top class defensive midfielder was a major issue during the final years of the Arsene Wenger era, and Wright reckons that after seeing Torreira's all-action displays at the heart of Unai Emery's midfield, that this problem has now been solved. We took on Huddersfield and a lot of people were expecting a pretty easy win and but it was anything but that. There were clear double standards when it comes to the bookings as our players got ones for diving, yet Huddersfield weren't penalised at all.

It turned out to be the winning goal to extend our unbeaten run to 21 games in all competitions and the win saw us move back in to the top four of the league ahead of Chelsea and Tottenham's games this evening.

Aubameyang brought down Guendouzi's ball in the box and though his initial effort was blocked by Terence Kongolo, the Gabon worldwide spotted Torreira and lifted the ball into the midfielder to smash in an emphatic victor. We wanted to play better with a different rhythm in the match but we couldn't do that because there were a lot of stoppages in the 90 minutes.

Emery added: "It was a very important result for us".

"It's not just [difficult] for us, also for the opposition".

"This game is not totally inconsequential when it comes to the Terriers' survival hopes, but it will not be a game they will expect to get any points from and, if they do, it will be an absolute bonus". There were a lot of yellow cards, a lot of stoppages and a lot of time lost.

'We can improve more and today we spoke that we want to win matches with more control. "I know that we altogether can keep our head high after this performance".

At the conclusion of a period in which there were reports of the players partying and inhaling nitrous oxide, such a run of fixtures could have proven more damaging, but Xhaka told the club's website: "It was a ideal week for us". We're stronger in what we're doing this year, probably.
